The Arizona Cardinals are now entering their 28th season in the desert since moving from St. Louis
The Arizona Cardinals have had some lean years and some good years since moving from St. Louis in 1988. In that time though they’ve seen a number of good to above average players. Some not so good as well.
Starting as the Phoenix Cardinals until they changed to the Arizona Cardinals in 1994, there have been players that have made their mark with the franchise and in the NFL. Here are the 50 best players in the history of the Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals. Please let us know if you agree/disagree by commenting.
50. Ronald McKinnon
He played linebacker for nine seasons from 1996-2004 with the Cardinals. You heard his name a lot if you listened to the radio. He was a joy to listen to and watch week in and week out. He ended his nine seasons with the Cards with 12 sacks, 10 interceptions, and one touchdown.
49. Randal Hill
The receiver played four seasons in Arizona from 1991-1994. In that time he caught 174 passes for 2,679 yards and eight touchdowns. Scoring was an issue for the Cardinals offense back in those days but Hill sure found his yards when the Cards needed them.
48. Rob Frederickson
The linebacker played in Arizona for four seasons from 1999-2002. In that time he had eight sacks and three interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. He has been involved with the Cardinals radio broadcasts in the days since.
47. Jamir Miller
He played linebacker for the Cardinals for five seasons from 1994-1998. He had 13.5 sacks during that stretch of his career.
46. Jay Feely
For this kicker, Feely might best be remembered for leading the Cardinals in scoring by himself against the Denver Broncos in a 43-13 victory. He scored his only NFL touchdown that day. He went 98-115 in field goal attempts during his four-year stretch in Arizona from 2010-2013.
